Updated to run on Debian 12 'Bookworm', with PHP 8.2 and the latest version of PTS as of today.

I also added build-linux-kernel, and right now the only non-interactive portion of the script is the pause after test installation, when the following prompt is displayed:

    Would you like to save these test results (Y/n): 

It looks like I could bypass that by setting up some defaults, e.g. /etc/phoronix-test-suite.xml with:


(But that would necessitate batch mode... I want to make it so I can bypass that question and not save results by default if using the suite...)

I added pts/build-linux-kernel with just defconfig but that doesn't seem to be working out... it runs both that and all deps.

I took out the build-linux-kernel test because it doesn't seem to accept the argument, it just runs all options which means it takes forever.

You can run it separately:

./phoronix-test-suite benchmark pts/build-linux-kernel
